Good news for "you people." Ann Romney doesn't blame you for not electing her husband, even though he spends his days buying Honey Nut Cheerios from a CVS like some kind of hobo, instead of reigning over us from the White House.
Unless you people work for the media. Then Ann totally hates you.

10:55 – Well, that's all for tonight. I know! The time just flies by in these debates, huh?
What did you guys think of the debate? Who won? Who lost? Who stole Ron Paul's eyebrows?
10:52 – Does Rick Perry only relate to other humans in sports analogies and prayer?
10:49 – "I'm a serious candidate for president." — Michele Bachmann and every other serious candidate for president ever
10:48 – Newt Gingrich believes that life begins at conceptions but marriage ends at cancer.
10:43 – Rick Santorum says Mitt Romney, as governor of Massachusetts, issued gay marriage licences. He might as well have said he had sex with a dead raccoon.
10:42 – Now Mitt Romney is flip-flopping over whether he ever changed his mind about something.
10:39 – So, the economy is so bad that Mexicans aren't sneaking across the border anymore. Even more reason to erect an electrified fence. We, as Americans, need to protect our dishwashers and chambermaids.
10:36 – So, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich want to outsource immigration to American Express?
10:35 – Man, the America that these candidates live in sounds like a really scary place.

Iowa Caucuses Are the First Big Event of Primary Season, Unless Ron Paul Wins in Which Case They're Just Some Dumb Straw Poll
There's some new polling out this week that shows Newt Gingrich's numbers slipping in Iowa just a few short weeks before the big huge important Iowa caucuses. These caucuses are so important, not just because they officially kick off the Republican primaries in earnest, because nabbing a big win in Iowa is a crucial step in any candidate's campaign to win his or her party's nomination.
Unless, of course, Ron Paul happens to win, in which case they don't count at all…
[Fox Business News host Neil] Cavuto asked [Fox News host Chris] Wallace what he thought the takeaway would be from a Ron Paul victory.
"Well, and the Ron Paul people aren't going to like me saying this, but, to a certain degree, it will discredit the Iowa caucuses because, rightly or wrongly, I think most of the Republican establishment thinks he is not going to end up as the nominee. So, therefore, Iowa won’t count and it will go on."
The logic here is simple, in the way that a circle is a simple geometrical figure: Ron Paul will not be the Republican nominee, and any poll, primary or caucus that says otherwise is wrong and stupid and untrustworthy because Ron Paul will not be the Republican nominee. We know that he will not be the Republican nominee because just look at all the wrong, stupid and untrustworthy polls, primaries and caucuses that say he will.
Logic 101, right there.

11:00 – Well, that is that. I'm not sure what there is to say about this debate. Everybody played their part well and nobody came right out and sucked the esophagus out of one of the other candidates. So, good job. What does everyone else think?
10:54 – @TheRealDCF: "@TheInDecider @allisonkilkenny That's easy. They'd all marry Reagan, kill the sick, and fuck the unemployed. #tweetthepress"
10:51 – Michele Bachmann paraphrased: "Even an idiot can beat Barack Obama next year, so choose me!"
10:49 – I think Rick Perry wants to see Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain get it on.
10:48 – So, does that mean that Ron Paul would chose himself as a running mate?
10:47 – Newt Gingrich has to go an be a killjoy as usual.
10:44 – Gary Johnson has the line of the night. "My neighbor's dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this administration." He should quit the race now. Always go out on a high note.

Poor Fox News must have had their feelings hurt so bad when Jon Stewart went on Fox News Sunday and said
overtly obviously truemean things about them, because it seems like the entire network has been just on the verge of tearsas they've discussed him over and over and over and over again.
So, hopefully this collection of deeply offensive stereotype voices that Jon Stewart and the Daily Show team put together can serve as some sort of reparations…
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11/10c.
